Expect interesting conversations, a chance to connect with new people and to be inspired to take action that gets us closer to a basic income in the UK.SIGN UP
Join us for the upcoming Basic Income Conversation seminar. Some of the most common criticisms of a basic income are that it is too expensive and that it’s not possible to win the public and political support for the policy. But the research presented at this event shows that an affordable basic income can have a dramatic impact on poverty and that a basic income is a vote winner, specifically in crucial swing seats.SIGN UP
Three key areas of work you can get involved in
Basic income has the potential to impact all aspects of life in the UK. We're supporting organisations in various sector to explore how basic income affects different social issues.
Is there a Basic Income Conversation you want to start?
Research is crucial to designing the right basic income for the UK. We support an interdisciplinary Research Network to encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration. The Research Network hosts regular, public seminars. Are you a researcher working on basic income?
Whether it's a full national roll out of basic income or pilots to test the idea, we need politicians to show leadership and sign basic income into legislation. For a change of this magnitude, it's going to take cross-party support. That's what we're building, can you help us?
